The smartphone world is buzzing with speculation about the Google Nexus 5. After selling out of the Nexus 4 and rumors that few to no more will be manufactured, as well as the fact that Apple just released its newest versions of the iPhone, it’s only a matter of time before the new Nexus will be announced.
While entirely speculative, the rumor mill is buzzing about what the Google Nexus 5 is projected to have under its hood.
A recent filing with the FCC indicates that the new phone will be LTE 4G compatible and will be manufactured by LG, just as the last Nexus was.
Just like other smartphones in the market these days, the Google Nexus 5 is expected to have a 5 inch screen. It will also be full 1080p HD.
The Nexus 5 will likely have a Qualcomm Spapdragon 800 quad core processor powering the whole device. It’s rumored to be a 2.3GHz processor backed by 3GB of RAM, meaning that the phone will simply soar through the newest Android operating system.
The most fetching rumor of them all is that there will be a new camera designed by the Nikon team featured as well. This camera would have 16 megapixels of resolution. Unfortunately, the source that brought this rumor about also suggested that the screen size may only be 4.5 inches wide and that the screen would be a 720P resolution, as opposed to the full HD version that many websites currently expect to be the standard.
The Nexus smartphone line used to be the leader in the Android smartphone market, but has since lost that title to new phones from competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. Having said that, the Nexus lineup always worked flawlessly with the Android operating system and additional firmware updates aren’t needed to keep the phone working smoothly, which is sometimes the case with third party phone manufacturers working on the Android platform.
The 16GB version of the phone is expected to be released at $299, a much better price point for smartphone consumers looking for the best Android mobile experience.
